Financing Health in Latin America: Systems and Financial Risk Protection:, Volumen2

Harvard University Press, 2013 M03 11 - 300 páginas

In Latin America, health financing systems have traditionally been segmented across population groups, leading to inefficiency and inequity. As a result, much of the population continues to be excluded from access to pooled, public, pre-payment options that protect them from impoverishment caused by health spending. This volume, the second in a two-part set, analyzes health financing systems in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Peru. The analysis highlights experiences and opportunities to offer financial protection in health. The cases describe stories of success as well as obstacles yet to overcome. They also identify emerging models and trends in the region.

This work is a product of the collaboration between more than 25 researchers and 18 institutions associated with the Research for Health Financing in Latin America and The Caribbean Network with support from the International Development Research Centre of Canada.
